When using co-authoring with Autosave in latest Excel desktop client, it fails if the workbook is password protected. Allow multiple users to edit a password protected workbook.101 votes
Thank you for taking the time to suggest and vote for this feature. We do not have plans to support coauthoring in password protected notebooks, but we are working to support coauthoring with protected documents in desktop clients.

Excel 2016 has recently removed the share workbook functionality and hidden the icon for easily sharing workbooks. It appears that this has not taken into account spreadsheets that are saved on file servers, and aren't uploaded into the cloud (ie the co-authoring functionality). Please return the functionality so that workbooks can be easily shared.101 votes
The Shared Workbook functionality is a limited experience and did not support usage of many Excel features during co-authoring. We chose to invest resources in building a full experience of co-authoring in Excel through Office 365. It is not possible at this time to provide that functionality to on-prem servers.
Add a Place allows us to choose from iCloud Drive, Office 365 SharePoint and OneDrive.
Could we add the choice to connect to other location such as a G Suite account in order to be able to save or save as in Drive.
The only way around so far is to install the third party add in "Google Drive".1 vote
This list can be customized, but only via add-ins as you’ve already noticed. The reason for that is that Office needs to know how to communicate with those storage locations, and each works differently – that’s what the add-in does.
There’s no way for Office to allow you to enter a URL and have things “just work,” unfortunately.
In the review tab there is a button to Share your workbook. Unfortunately it does not work if you have a table in the workbook (there is an FYI if you hoover over the button). Question: why does this not work for workbooks with tables? I use tables all the time and most of my files are used by several people.1 vote
